Summary: Gave up with the 256 GB version and upgraded to the 512 GB model as per Samsung support this was to rectify the problems. Microsoft tools would not work with my new drive. Samsung supports solution was to use third party utilities to correct the problems.

Summary: Out of 5 SSDs I own this is the only one that died after 2 month of usage (actually, the rest four are still doing well). Trying to get this thing replaced is a torture - they made it almost impossible.
Excerpt: Samsung really had set the bar high with performance and reliability of their 830 series solid state drives. The 840 Pro takes that bar and raises it up. This SSD is amazingly fast with some very impressive read/write speeds.
Excerpt: I bought this SSD before Christmas in 2012, the price was a bit higher than other drives of comparable size and I was extremely skeptical of the performance specs that it claimed. However, something occurred to me; Samsung makes their own flash modules, flash memory controllers, and even the case.
Summary: If you buy this make sure you are VERY VERY careful......it is a flimsy piece of kit, and the communications break to easily, as I now know, so a complete waste of money and is now in the bin....
Summary: It came quite quickly but was not as stated it was a version slow thsan adverstised and about 3yrs older. Returned it and got my money back. However i did nto get my pos and packing fee until i sent a few more e-mails and quoted Amazons own words i.e. not as advertised.
